So I got falkenzrs lotr yesterday. Really got to play it quite a bit today. I was able to get to play "destroy the ring" 4 times. 2 out of the 4 I had one more ramp path to complete and then onto the ring.
My closest time destroying the ring was the weirdest/funniest. I cleared all 3 of the 4 shots required before going on to the ring. Just as I did that I saw a screw (really long one that holds the plastic by the green bulbs on the potd) fall off onto the potd! Haha I debated whether or not to stop because I didn't want to damage the playfield or worse have it fall under the playfield and short something together. I took the next shot and nailed the 4th ramp.....and the screw fell. I sat there cradling the ball on the right flipper.....I didn't hear it hit the cabinet bottom...the ring lamp flashing....just 2 more shots....I decided I'll have to destroy the ring another time. I didn't want to risk it. Took me about an hour to find it. Wasn't in anyplace dangerous. It didn't even fall under the playfield. Was lodged in a crack. Oh well! Better to destroy the ring later than destroy the game now!
